Clothing, Date


  1. Two Basic Atmospheres

First and foremost, you’ll have to know what you are going to wear on your first date and make sure that it’s versatile enough to match two basic atmospheres or moods. The first one is a formal date. This usually takes place at night and happens at the opera, the theater, over dinner or something of that kind.  Chances are good that it’s not the kind of date that you are going on for the first time, but if you are, then good job! – You are one classy dude.

The next kind of date is more casual and common. This date can be a daytime trip to a fancy park or even a picnic. You should remember that if you are going on a date that is concentrated with activities such as rock climbing or hiking, the only thing that you are required to do is dress appropriately.

  1. General Tips 

One golden rule is that every date you will go into, you need to make sure that your clothes are clean and pressed in order for you to be presentable enough. This goes for your own physical appearance as well. You should get your hair cut at least one week or so before your date. This is definitely not the perfect timing to change the style of your hair. All you need to do is just go with your usual style and let it grow for a week or so. Clean and clip your nails, take a good shower and put on deodorant, as well as wear enough perfume so that she can be able to smell you when she will lean closer to you.

Layers are also great since if the date can go long and if it will start to get a bit colder, you can show off your gentleman side by offering her your sweater or jacket – it is certainly a classy move to be remembered by her.

Dress Up Dates

These dates are actually much simpler than you think. It is because there is no need for you to go overboard. What you need basically is a checkered or light-colored shirt, some khaki pants and a blazer. Dark denim also works great if it is a less dressy occasion. In addition to that, dark brown shoes are generally better compared to black shoes and it is best laced up loafers. However, above all else, you should make sure that your shoes are clean and presentable. Believe me, she will definitely notice if you go on a date with her wearing unpolished, beat up shoes. Your shoes will be one of the first things that she will notice on you. After all, you want to leave a good impression right? Never forget to wear a pair of clean shoes!

Some little touches can also make you look smart and cool such as a nice wristwatch or a pocket square – fashion experts even highly recommend them. You should also try to avoid much dressier accessories such as neckties or cufflinks. Always remember to keep your date casual, even though it is some kind of a formal one

The Casual Date 

This type of date is the easiest date to dress for. You can simply go out and show up on your date with a nice and pair of shoes, clean loafers or canvas sneakers or a polo shirt. Dark denim or khakis, never light ones that are best reserved for drag races and rock concerts are ideal outfits too. Do not tuck in the polo shirt, but you should tuck in any top with buttons.
